First and foremost! YEAH BC, CANADA! (just because I'm a bit patriotic), second, I found it really interesting that this blows the whole "loss of shell" theory out of the water. What an amazing discovery. Lastly... I think it's "amusing" that they title this a "carnivorous squid"... last time I checked, most cephalopods were carnivorous... right? This isn't really a revolutionary idea.
